Greek (based at Athens) progsters Ocean’s Edge present you the lyric video for the single “Waterfall” included in the recently released (May 2023) debut album “The Voyager”.
Ocean’s Edge is an Athens-based progressive metal band which was born when bassist and main songwriter Manos Sideris (ex-Karteλ), guitarist John Aktypis and keyboardist Panos Haritidis (Ex-Solid Faith) met through an online ad in 2017.
Their influences include but are not limited to Symphony X, Dream Theater, Haken, Ayreon and Need. The recruitment of drummer Christos Palamidas (ex-Oddious, ex-Faceless Mass) laid the initial foundation of the band. Afterwards, through various changes, the line-up was finalized with the additions of vocalist Manos Xanthakis (Alphastate, Obscura / ex-Agnosia, ex-False Coda) and guitarist Constantinos Mavroyiannis (ex-The Silent Rage) in replacement of founding member John Aktypis. Ex members include Vasilis Misthos and Leonidas Chatzimichalis both in vocals.
Their music is a mix of heavy metal with progressive elements and clean vocals. Lush harmonies combine with intricate rhythmic patterns and multiple themes and changes throughout the course of their songs, aiming to create emotions of taking listeners through a journey. Their lyrical content revolves around internal quest, philosophical / existential patterns and social themes. At the same time, the band draws inspiration from current and past sci-fi media and pop culture including books, movies, etc.
Ocean’s Edge spent the better part of 2022 in the studio for the recordings of their first album “The Voyager”, while its first single entitled “Supernatural” was released in December 2022, in digital form.
